We seek to prevent the planned slaughter, by Parks Victoria, of the Victorian High Country Brumbies including the last remaining horses with a proven genetic link to Waler horses used in WW1.
Only one of those magnificent horses returned home. In one of those fortunate twists of fate, the horses bred by the McNamara and Young families on the Bogong High Plains who were numbered among them, were bred with before they were sold to the Waler trade.
Their descendants are today’s Bogong Brumbies.
Those in the east of Victoria share the work and nation building heritage of all brumbies.
Litigation on this issue is continuing and legal costs are rising rapidly.
The intention is to prevent all shooting of horses planned by Parks Vic and the Victorian State Government.
This gofundme is to help with legal costs.
We truly appreciate all the help we’ve received so far, as news of these proposed atrocious acts spreads.
We'd like to acknowledge the amazing effort of our lawyers, Roberts Gray, who have been burning the candle at both ends. Always available.
Best lawyers around! https://www.robertsgray.com.au
